MissionMission reports that Duc Loi (Mission at 18th) is serving their own Banh Mi sandwiches. And survey says they are quite special, prepared in their own kitchen, with house-made charcuterie, with fresh asian veggies on La Brea bread! They look great – I’ll try to get there this week and report back. I like to go produce browsing at Duc Loi anyway, for all those vegetables and fruits that look great and I have no idea what they’re called.
In the meantime, the burgers that were “popping up” at Duc Loi on weekday afternoon have found a home at the new Mission Bowl, and the evening price tag of $15 for a burger has raised some Mission eyebrows, but the owner has some decent reasoning – the test will be whether they last.
